    I’ve heard the term “Hot-Bunking”

    Its when the crew on a submarine. Someone gets out of bed (their BUNK) to begin their shift of work, the person getting off shift then sleep in thet same BUNK (which is still warm, or HOT) Whe he wakes up, the bunk is used by another sailor.


  2. Yep, “hot” as a prefix has it going on: there’s hot-desking, hot-swapping, and hot-racking (hot-bunking on a submarine), and probably a bunch of others I’m forgetting.
